Myer Chief Executive Officer, Bernie Brookes, said good progress had once again been made executing the company’s well-established five-point plan which continues to provide clear direction for the business. 
 
“It was encouraging to achieve total sales growth despite significant sales disruption caused by three of the top 20 stores being under major refurbishment and the closure of our store at Dandenong (VIC). It was also pleasing that this growth was achieved on top of strong growth in the previous corresponding period (1H FY2013),” said Mr Brookes.
 
“The positive comparable store sales growth achieved in Q1 continued into Q2, and the business has now delivered comparable store sales growth in six of the last seven quarters. The second quarter was characterised by weak trading during November and the first half of December but with significant improvement immediately prior to Christmas and a very strong Stocktake Sale.”
